Me too, 8.2 is a powerful one!

Try usgs.gov earthquakes for 24/7 global earthquake tracking. :tu:

EDIT: Cool site, w/ very good maps and search options, etc. Also, global records dating back to 1900!

8.2? Wow. And Californians were complaining about the 5.1 they got the other day. The Chile earthquake expended about 40,000 times more energy then the latest California one.

I'm posting the CNN homepage because the breaking news link only opens the blog page I posted earlier. There's been 9 significant aftershocks, one a 6.2. On TV they said there's been waves and landslides but still no reports of damage. Hawaii is on alert in case a tsunami wave would reach them.

The waves that hit were between one and two meters high, so not that bad.

The X.1 flare the other day. Then a major earthquake. Amid a geomagnetic storm watch, not an actual storm,... yet or if. http://www.solarham.net/index.htm

My sister used to work in the Embassy in Chile.

Am watching news, they are making no issue of it. 5 people have died, my heart goes to their families, so far casualties are very low.

Everyone in low lying areas have been evacuated, so hopefully no more casualties.

The news channels are basically showing all the deaths around the world because of war.........jeeze.....

Sounds like this one just hit within the last hour or so.

Hope it's like the last one and doesn't do much damage. Those poor people.
